Souvenir of Canada

2005 NR

Based on Vancouver native Douglas Coupland's 2002 essay collection, this quirky documentary celebrates everything the Generation X author loves about his country by capturing his efforts to build and furnish an über-Canadian home. Each design choice and cultural artifact -- from maple syrup to handcrafted toy owls -- is a puzzle piece that helps complete his homage. While at work, Coupland rhapsodizes about his distinctly Canadian upbringing.
